Wolves In The Throne Room’s Aaron Weaver on “Primordial Arcana,” nature, preserving history, first moving musical experience, and much more!

Wolves In the Throne Room

With seventh full length, Primordial ArcanaWolves In The Throne Room literally have nothing else to prove to anyone. They make their brand of atmospheric black metal for themselves and their own spirits and have gained a massive following since their inception in 2002 due to their extremely nature inspired and spiritually grounded music and the feeling surrounding each release that fans have come to know and love. And, Primordial Arcana is no different yet is its own spirit animal as well as possibly their best release yet. . With that said, head inside for an in depth discussion with drummer Aaron Weaver via The Nine Circles Audio Thing.

Rivers of Nihil’s Jake Dieffenbach on upcoming album “The Work,” finding a green thumb, musical directions, and much more!

Later this month, progressive / technical death metallers Rivers of Nihil will drop their fourth full length, The Work, and by all accounts this album will be a crowning achievement for them as well as their fans and fans of extreme metal in general. 2018’s Where Owls Know My Name really blew the lid off for them and received mountains of praise, as it should have. The Work finds the band at an even higher creative peak and, somehow, heavier than ever. We’re foaming at the mouth over it and before long, you will be too. With that said, head inside for an in depth discussion with vocalist Jake Dieffenbach via The Nine Circles Audio Thing.

CANTO: Full of Hell, Omnium Gatherum, Negură Bunget, and More

I don’t always like taking Monday off from this stuff because there’s so much going on, but life be like that sometimes.

  • We’ll start with Omnium Gatherum, who have set November 5th as the release date for Origins. Their new full-length album will be out through Century Media, and the video for the first single taken from that album, “Paragon”, is available right here.
  • Whitechapel have also unveiled details about their next album. Kin will be out on October 29th through Metal Blade, and a new track, titled “Lost Boy”, can be streamed here. Side note: I dig the artwork of this one.
  • Negură Bunget, which is just super fun to say, are also among those to announce upcoming new albums. Their final album, Zău, will be out on November 26th through Prophecy Productions. These always come with a new single/video, so here’s the link to “Brad”.
  • More videos today. Low hanging fruit and all that. Check out the clip from American Teeth for “Sick”. Sure is a lot going on there… and I’m not necessarily complaining.
  • We’re going to close with the new video from Full of Hell because of course we are. Check out the clip for “Reeking Tunnels” below. That’s taken from Garden of Burning Apparitions, which drops on October 1st through Relapse Records.

Album Review: Wolves in the Throne Room — “Primordial Arcana”

Wolves in the Throne Room - Primordial Arcana

The essence of the landscape of the Pacific Northwest has always been one that is deeply romantic, in the traditional sense.  Intense emotions and deep wonder often leave one changed after visiting those wilds, and that is exactly why we fell in love with both the place and the musical scene that emerged from the area.  We adore the folky, atmospheric and entrancing black metal of Cascadia, and fortunately the masters of the style are back with another choice offering.  Grab your cleansing herbs and bottle of red wine, it is time to ready the stage for Wolves in the Throne Room and their latest release Primordial Arcana
